The band was originally formed in 1994, out of boredom, in Laval, a suburb of Montreal. At the beginning, the "aim" of the group was to improvise lyrics and melodies on karaoke music. But, in 2003, the now enlarged group decided to take a more straightforward approach by abandoning the karaoke music and by creating their own sounding. First, the songs are imagined, written and composed by Joel Chevalier and then vocalized by Caroline Fournier, Jacynthe Fradette, Solange Lavergne and Evelyne Mireault. Sometimes, there are special guests like Marc-Andre Lemaire-Perreault and Simon Garcia. "Now, the main objective of our work is to make people believe in 'indirect humor'. But, of course, to appreciate our songs, one must have an above normal artistic sense and highly developed sensitivity. We use absurdity to express simple elements or events of everyday life" composer Chevalier says.
